, that the religion is what it is, and you live by the rules because that's what the faith is about. what is faith? what is the church? what should be the right rules? and maybe the expedience of the moments, if we just adjust to the times, you se some sense of what the faith is at its core. that's certainly the orthodox position. on the other hand, you've got lots of catholics from my generation who want to see it be more exclusive and sclus inclus inviting, and would want that from the pope. >> especially when it comes to birth control. mary ann walsh sort of pooh-poohed that, but it is very important to catholic women. almost 90% of catholic women have taken birth control at some point in their lives. >> and there are no women priests or women in positions of power, not to denegrate in any way the nuns and the amazing influence they had on many lives, including mine as a catholic student. but this pope himself, very interesting, called the rottweiler of god, so strict to orthodoxy, he got into a point of confusion, right, because when he was talking about africa, the first time that they talked
with the owners who say their religion is the rope they didn't bake the couple's cake. >> he believes in god and i does not believe in same-sex marriage. he shouldn't have to bake a cake for that. he should be able to freely deny them without all this backlash. >> reporter: despite the protest outside, sweet cakes was open for business. supportive customers lined up out the door. >> i appreciate the fact that they are standing up for what they believe in and i want to show them support since there are demonstrators not showing support. >> the owners say the backlash has been harsh but they're standing by their decision. >> make me feel good to know that even though everybody seems to think that portland and the surrounding areas are so liberal that there really are some conservative christians out there that want to make their voices heard. >>> next, a look at the big winners in this year's grammys. we'll be right back. almost tastes like one of jack's cereals. fiber one. uh, forgot jack's cereal. [ jack ] what's for breakfast? um... try the number one! yeah, this is pretty good. [ male announcer
faith and reason and the role of religion in a post-modern sectarian world, and even many of his fiercest critics would express admiration for his intellectual depth. as a ceo, as a business manager, the verdict is much more mixed. many critics would say he never got his hands successfully around the sexual abuse scandal. there was, of course, a spectacular vatican leak scandal that included the arrest of his own butler and created disarray and palace intrigue. there was a kind of chronic inability to get the trains to run on time. >> barbara, what do you think? >> reporter: well, obviously john is much better to speak about the ideology than i am, but think he also will be remembered by the scandals. even going to the american nuns and clamping down on them. there are a lot of people who may not be unhappy to see a change in the vatican. but, you know, the vatican butler scandal, the sex scandals, protesters in st. peter's square, you know, things like that that have really marked the last several years, i think, are going to be remembered by a lot of people when they come to st
's an election, consisting of the cardinals, the religion, will meet in rome to decide on a new pope. that will happen before the end of march. again, there had been reports in the past couple of months that his health had been failing, that he had difficulty reading text, and he had in the past suggested if popes had problem in office with their health, that, in fact, that they should step down. he followed his own message. in fact, he will be stepping down less than eight years into his papacy. to show how historic this is, guys, the last time this happened was 600 years ago. that happened to be pope gregory in the year 1415. we just heard a press conference from vatican officials in the past ten minutes or so and they looked surprised. they said they got this information this morning. so secrecy is the name of the game in the vatican. benedict is his name. he is a german. he was a strong conservative. they called him the enforcer in the church prior to becoming a pope. the pope's rotweiler, referring to a dog, that's how he was referred to as well. the choice of ratzinger as pope
't strong enough. he defended muslims with the speech defending violent religion. among other gestures pope benedict made blue mosque. the biggest scandal he had to deal with were the widespread sandals of sex abuse against clergy. critics say he didn't do enough. formal apologies and probes in the u.s.s. ireland and elsewhere. he also had to deal with a but butler who stole documents alleging corruption in the vatican. he later pardoned him. benedict saw himself as a quiet intellectual. still he made 25 international trips. well received by crowds and tweeting spiritual messages. rolling platform to roll through st. peters. all of this leading up to momentous decision to step down when he felt he was no longer up for the job. >> pope benedict will not be involved in next month's con conclave of cardinals. he might have a silent vote. he had a big hand of choosing many of those cardinals. bill? >> greg palkot reporting live tonight from london. the pope's replacement could make history as well. experts tell us one of the top contenders is peter cardinal circleson from the country of gahanna
. >> thank you. with us now is author david van beema, he spent more than a decade as the chief religion writer for "time" magazine and joins us now. david, good morning. >> good morning. >> this is the first pope to resign in six centuries. this is incredibly unusual. were you shocked when you heard the news? >> i was shocked at the timing. but i was not shocked he had resigned. he had already written from time to time it was appropriate for a pope to resign. >> he had written that in his 2010 book "light of the world," where if a pope realizes they are no longer physically able it would be their obligation to resign. what does this mean for his legacy? >> the papacy which is relatively short, the combination of that and the sex abuse scandal, probably means we'll see him in 50 years or something like that as the consolidation of the conservative movement of the papacy. he will be seen as the second part of the john paul ii papacy rather than as somebody who made a huge mark of his own, at least not in terms of the wider world. >> beyond those efforts, was he tryin
faith and religion in this country right now. can you tell us what you think the significance of this announcement is? it comes as a shock to us this morning. >> look, it's shocking to me, and i have covered this pope his entire pontificate, but when he was in the previous office he held as cardinal ratzinger, i had the only english interview with this pope at length before his election. it is curious to watch this unfo unfold. because at that time, cardinal ratzinger wanted to retire in 'the 90, '93, again in '96, up to '99. he declined each time, stopped himself and didn't retire, because of the example of the previous pope he told me in an interview, so to watch this -- i have to say, i'm taken attack by it as a journal and it's personally know itting the background and knowing his vision of wanting to reform the church and realizing he is side by side with john paul during his long convalescence, this is a pope that died before the world. taught the world how to die. a real shock to many catholics around the world and i think people of other faiths as well. and we'll see w
the history of biblical religion from "a" to "z." who never wanted to be an executive, a manager, who always thought of himself primarily as a scholar. but who somehow could translate all of that learning into beautiful simplicities about god's love for the world and for god's people. >> and, george, even as we honor the service of this pope, we look forward to the election of a new pope. and tell us about this process. i mean, is this a sort of thing where, for lack of a better term, there are front-runners? >> there will be an enormous amount of ink spilled in the italian press over the next two weeks about front-runners. most of that would be silly. there are a number of cardinals who fit what would seem to me to be the profile. first of all, a man in full physical vigor. that suggests to me someone perhaps under 70. someone who w the linguistic skills to speak to the church in italian obviously, he's the bishop of rome but also in english, spanish, et cetera. i think above all, a pope who can be peter again, who can be an evangelist, who can be a missionary, who can make the church's pro
